When is the last time you hosted something?
Was it a dinner party? A birthday? Or maybe a family gathering? How about a website?
Yes, you read that right – a website. You see, in the world of web design, hosting has very little to do with lavish soirees and more to do with making sure your website reaches the world wide web and has a place to exist. Without it, your business cannot exist online.
To help you understand what hosting is, it helps to think of your newly designed or existing website as a collection of files in need of a home. But that home can’t be your computer; it has to be a new home, where these files can make their way onto the web through servers.
In other words, while your website exists in a digital space, it also needs a physical location where it can be downloaded and uploaded from. Now you may be asking yourself if it’s just some disk space that broadcasts to the net, why can’t you just get a server in your house?
Because maintaining a server is a lot of work, and takes a lot of time and skill to run it smoothly. Imagine trying to troubleshoot why your website is down at 1 in the morning and running into a wall of tech lingo with very little translation for the laymen.
Of course, some web design companies leave clients to find a solution, but with us, we include hosting in all our main packages at no fee differences for the first year. In addition, we offer many other benefits:
- A free 'Let's Encrypt SSL certificate' with every domain – added security for your website

- Unlimited bandwidth.
- 15 email accounts – making it easier to manage communications or queries from your website.
